Volunteering

As a Vision Support Volunteer you will help us to support people with a vision impairment who live in Cheshire, Halton and North Wales.

Volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and age groups but what brings them together is that they are all interested in supporting people with a vision impairment.

There is something for everybody so whether you want to do your volunteering from home, in one of our offices or Resource Centres, or if you want to be out in the community there is something to suit you.

 

How to get involved

There are various roles available as a volunteer such as supporting with our social groups or our campaigning groups, making befriender phone calls or even volunteering in one of our resource centres.

If you would like to find out more about a particular volunteering role please get in touch and one of our Volunteer Coordinators can go through the current volunteering opportunities with you.

 

What support would I get as a volunteer?

You would have the support of the Volunteer coordinator in your area and of any other member of staff  involved with your work. We will also provide you with any training you may need to carry out your role. In addition all volunteers receive an induction to the organisation, and will be invited to attend Awareness training and Sighted guided training. Agreed travel expenses can also be reimbursed. Once a year we hold a Volunteer Celebration Day to which all our volunteers are invited.
